Agreed again! I enjoy all of these Steve Hackett albums. I think he has the balance just right and his band’s performances of all the Genesis material is top notch, the classic songs and also tracks you didn’t get live back in the day such as ‘Can Utility and the Coastliners’ and of course ‘Blood on the Rooftops’!
Did they mean that in a positive way or the sneering way of somebody who just doesn’t understand the 70s?
@joy_boy I think you’ve pulled the pin on this grenade of a conversation. There’s a LOT of really great live material. Seconds Out is one of my absolute favourites and the second album I bought (and the album I’ve bought the most since) but the other posts on here are not wrong. If I venture into the back catalogues of Yes, Peter Gabriel, Supertramp, Rush or even Genesis themselves (sticking broadly with the genre) there’s a lot of competition and then if I think about the names already set out by others and add John Lee Hooker, BB King, The Beatles, Depeche Mode and countless others to the mix….well you can see where I’m going
